Granger Elementary students treated after can of pepper spray opened in cafeteria
WEST VALLEY CITY — Paramedics were called to Granger Elementary School on Wednesday to treat children exposed to pepper spray after a student opened a can of it during lunch, school district officials said.
"A student brought a can of pepper spray into the cafeteria and released some of the contents into the air," according to a Facebook post by Granite School District.
Students exposed to the substance were treated by paramedics and a school nurse. Parents of the affected students were contacted, the school district said. Others were asked to examine their children "to ensure they are not experiencing any medical concerns."
"Your child’s safety is our primary concern," the district's statement said. "The offending student is facing appropriate district level discipline. Any time student safety is potentially jeopardized, we take those incidents very seriously."
The remainder of the school schedule went ahead as normal Wednesday.
Anyone with questions can call Granger Elementary at 385-646-4852.
